Our office proudly follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff and to properly implement the social distancing protocols, such as:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. We will start texting you your forms and consents before you arrive to speed up the process of checking you in and confirming your appointments via texts and E-mail. 

  • We have hand sanitizer, and face masks that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. 

  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

  • We have placed a series of engineering protocols to make our facility safe. Including placing sneeze guards, medical grade ULTRA-HEPA filters (I-Qair units), extra-oral aerosol capturing units, rubber dams, as well as Intra-oral high-volume suction items.

  • We are also implementing the CDC and ADA and CDA infection control recommendations in sterilization and disinfection. We provide our doctors and team members with the highest level of PPES including N95, KN95 and surgical masks, surgical gowns, face-shields, googles, head covers and gloves. We are continuously disinfecting the facility to make sure everybody including patients and team members are safe.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.
